Lewis Again

   I have been reading 'The Mystery of Lewis Carroll' by Jenny Woolf.  It is a wonderful biography and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about this intriguing author. 
 As I was reading about Carroll's life I was moved to do a study of his face.  Luckily there was a journal and pencil at hand so the muse didn't have to wait long to be answered.
  The most famous portrait of Carroll was made by photographer Oscar G. Rejlander in 1863, and was the reference I used for my drawing.    
 'A Boat Beneath a Sunny Sky' was written out on the left page...... I love this poem and wanted to include it in my journal along with Carroll's modest glance.
 Now I'm ready to get back to reading the second half of the book!
 You can find more information about Lewis Carroll and the book on Jenny Woolf's website or on Amazon.
